A NEW team of executive members for the Kingfisher Bowling Association (KBA) was recently elected at the association’s AGM.

Barbara Brooks was elected president, taking over from Lynne Bamber, who served as president for three years.

The new members of the KBA executive are Tyrone­ Ferguson (vice-president), Carol McMullin (secretary), Gae Gravell (treasurer), Geoff Barbour (men’s competition secretary) and Tina Barbour (women’s competition secretary.

Three additional members were elected to be part of the executive - Shane Nienaber, Sea­n Larkins and Bruce Hoyer.

Speaking to the Fever Brooks said she is honoured to take on this position.

“I am honoured, but and at the same time a bit apprehensive because we’re answerable to all associated clubs and their members, and in this case we have 18 clubs.”

Brooks had been a member of another bowling club for six years.

“I have been a member of Margate Bowling Club for six years and was president for two years before getting onto the KBA committee two years ago.

“It comes with a huge responsibility to about 1 140 bowlers, but fortunately, we have a really strong, very competent committee, which spreads the load.

“My personal mission is to uphold a strong culture of transparency and accountability and to promote transformation.”

Brooks said KBA is constantly keeping up to date with new development strategies aligned to international standards and Bowls SA, the governing body of every bowling association in the country.
